Celebration Kinderschool is a parttime program that serves children from 1 year old through Kindergarten. Our goal is to help children connect to God through learning and to help their parents connect to others. Our programs runs on a calendar similar to the Leon Public Schools calendar. Our normal school week is Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Extended care is available. See below for more information!

About CBK

Chapel Time

Chapel Time is provided for the four and five year olds with our Children's Pastor Tommy Hendricks. We learn Bible stories that relate to the monthly themes. We sing praise songs while "signing' them and we learn to pray together. This is a special time for everyone. Parents are always welcome to join us!

Special Area

Three, four and five year olds
  • Bible
  • Art and Science
  • Music and Movement
  • Physical Education
  • Library/Media.
Music is a great teaching tool for children. All ages use music as a learning tool. During the Special Area time, the teacher will be using instruments, CDs and other fun ways to appreciate music. For all other ages, music time will be incorporated into their classroom schedule. Each class will use movement as a gross motor learning tool.
